Introducing Larry Baughn, author of The Ghost Hunter

“This is the first novel I have ever written, let alone publish, and Outskirts Press was there for me all-the-way! They walked me through all the intricacies associated with preparing and editing my book, which I was totally unaware of, and when I had too many questions for a simple email, my representative contacted me by phone and led me through all the ins and outs. I’m now a published author and Outskirts Press is still there for me, answering post publication questions and giving me excellent information about marketing my book. I will definitely choose them again when I finish with my second novel!”

Dave McClure is on a plane to Alaska in early winter, having quit his job with the FBI and turned his back on the world. It’s been a year since the horrific accident that claimed his wife and son, and McClure is still unable to move beyond his grief. Remembering the joy he once shared with his wife on vacation in Alaska, he heads north… seeking solace and resolving to either put his painful past behind him or succumb to the unforgiving Alaskan wilderness. Instead, McClure finds a grisly scene in the forest — the body of a hunter whose throat has been cut ear to ear. And that’s only the beginning. In Snow Men… equal parts international thriller and wilderness survival — McClure uncovers a cache of nuclear weapons and a Russian-Iranian plot to wipe the nation of Israel off the map. With only a hunting rifle, a pistol, and a few days worth of supplies, Dave McClure not only faces Russian Special Forces and the harsh reality of nature, but discovers a will to live he didn’t know he still had. Spanning locales in Alaska, Paris, Amsterdam, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Thailand, and Washington, DC, Snow Men is a heart-pounding thriller set against the pristine beauty of Alaska’s rugged Wrangell-St. Elias wilderness.
